Levante of Spain winger, Moses Simon has ruled out a continuation of injury woes for him at his new base, as he believes the arrival of his baby daughter has already indicated that better days are ahead of him in La Liga.
Despite again bowing out of action last weekend due to injury, Simon recounted that the arrival of his daughter just 48 hours before he signed the deal at Levante assured him that he is in for a vibrant lease of life in Spain, hence his decision to name her Emmanuella.
The ex SK Trencin of Slovakia and KAA Gent of Belgium winger sat out Levante’s opening win away at Real Betis due to injury, but the 22-year-old star believes the birth of his first child by his wife, Ibukun, is a turning point in his career.
Simon, who married Ibikun on December 29, 2016 in her hometown, Ibadan, thanked God for the safe delivery of his daughter and praised his wife for making him a father.
He labelled her ‘the queen’ that brought a princess for him, thereby making him a true hero and king.
After missing out on Nigeria’s squad to the 2018 World Cup in Russia due to injury, Simon said he is now looking forward to a return to the national team for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles.
Simon declared: “Obviously, I miss playing with the national team. I have put the World Cup miss behind me and I’m ready to give my best when called upon.
“Emmanuella has brought joy and blessing to me and my family. She came into our lives as a blessing and that’s why we named her Emmanuella.”
